Not just another musical, this Chicago drama embodies the reality of indie musicians. Talkofchicago (Empire – A&R) stars as Trent, Chairman of Barzrus. The neighborhood alley mechanic Norman evolves into DJ Waffles. Lyric Zinn stars as cousin Jay Jay, known for doing too much.
Ciara, Carri & Briel (Trent’s three daughters) are also dreamchasers whom later creates the rap group Citikidz, Barzrus signees.

They say when it rains it pours, or when it snows it cause road side assistance. Trent calls the best alley mechanic (Norman) in Chicago, whom happens to become more of a deterrent. All these unexpected chain of events happens the Night Before Christmas. Carri, Ciara, & Briel considers their father a deadbeat excuse making loser.

Ep 101| Night Before Christmas


An urban drama involving rivalry of three siblings (Carri, Ciara & Briel). Things go left once cousin Jay Jay moves in, if overstaying his welcome was a person it’s him. Takes place in Windy City, ironically cold December. The Night Before Christmas triggers a messy New Year courtesy of bad santa (Trent).

 On a lighter note, two month old Legend Zinn takes on role of Macho, a handsome handful of enfamil energy. Who but Ciara wouldn’t want a precious newborn brother? Once Carri recognize gifts aren’t gifting, she no longer thinks highly of the family newest edition either. 

 On behalf of Barzrus tik tok trending, the label becomes global generating royalties, and sponsors. Talkofchicago (Trent) in his bag to say the least, a force to be reckoned with. There’s even room at the round table for DJ Waffles, a former alley mechanic better known as Norman.
